This bird was skulking through some brambles close to a marshy area but eventually came out onto the marsh and gave excellent views.
No interactions present.
Nice shot Peter, I've only ever managed a quick glimpse of one, as you say a secretive bird.

So often referred to in books as a "Skulking crake." How often do you hear that word except in reference to Water Rails? Why is that? It's a GREAT word!
Grasshopper Warblers are good for a bit of a skulk and Jack Snipe are highly accomplished skulkers, too. I've known one or two birders who had a leaning towards it, too...

You have hit on one of my bogey birds when you mention Jack Snipe - looked for them a number of times at various places but they are just too - Skulking.
